The effects of PaCO2 reduction on regional cerebral blood flow in the acute phase of brain injury.

Abstract

In 26 unconscious patients with brain injuries, regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) was measured with a 16-channel Cerebrograph before and after acute reduction of PaCO2. The intra-arterial 133xenon washout technique was used, and CBF was calculated regionally as initial slope index or stochastic flow. The CO2 reactivity was calculated as deltaln CBV… (More)
